Suede’s Mat Osman,
The TVD Interview

I catch Mat Osman on a Monday morning, but he’s in London, where it must be nearing teatime. He doesn’t sound as if he needs a pick-me-up; as soon as he picks up the phone we’re off to the races. “I spend all of my life talking,” he says, which is one of the reasons […]

Paul Morley,
The TVD Interview

The creation of the Manchester music scene in England can be traced in many ways to one man—a bespectacled TV journalist there named Tony Wilson. His work in signing Joy Division and creating Factory Records inspired dozens of other bands and made the industrial city in the North a kind of beacon for a type […]

Diamante,
The TVD Interview

In a music industry that seems more cookie-cutter than cutting edge, few emerging artists flip my switch as potentially being the next big thing. Most seem to easily “talk the talk” but fall far short when they “walk the walk.” It sounds cliché, but it’s true in many cases. Enter Diamante. From an early age, […]

Buffy Sainte-Marie,
The TVD Interview

Her youthful defiance comes to the fore more than once over the course of an hour’s conversation on what was—for her, in Hawaii—an extremely early morning. Her laughter is effusive, her joie de vivre inspiring as I cling […]

Racquel Jones,
The TVD Interview

Who is Racquel Jones?  To some, she’s an amazing musician and vocalist.  For others, she’s an inspired artist and painter. However, after peeling back the onion a bit, I found Racquel Jones to be quite simply extraordinary.  Born and raised in Jamaica, Jones has broken molds and shattered ceilings as a rising star. She is […]
